Oracle Aconex for Large Scale Construction

With aconex, its really easy to handle this large scale project. Without aconext it wouldve taken ages to submit approve and construct everything


Malith F.

Oracle Aconex for Industrial Projects and Professional

Since my organization is using this software, I have been also a user of this more than two years.

As an Engineer, everyday I get Aconex notifications to my outlook which is very helpful for me to get an idea of them before opening the Aconex. Since there are thousands of documents and emails, it is difficult for me to memorize everything. Therefore open and read in Aconex is easier than memorizing them. I normally use Aconex to send documents to other organizations since it is a secure medium.

I highly recommend Aconex to any organization and professional.

Aconex Preliminary Evaluation

This review is based on the early stages of implementation and configuration. Aconex guarantees you that they can have your system up and running within a matter of a few weeks. What's not taken into account is the configuration based on your organizations needs and defining your internal processes. Without going through their professional services, you are left to determine what works that can encounter perhaps unnecessary pitfalls. Given our current status, we are still struggling to pull together a system that is fluid for us as well as the contractors and how we collaborate. We are dealing with multiple projects that compounds the situation and would have liked to have been provided more guidance throughout the development phase. To be fair, there needs to be direction and consensus from within in order to produce a workable product.

Aconex was easy to learn and easy to configure.

Ease of tracking documents in workflow and ease of transmitting documents to and from outside contractors.

With aconex, its really easy to handle this large scale project. Without aconext it wouldve taken ages to submit approve and construct everything

Pros

The project I'm working in is Cinnomon Life. Which us a 1.2Billion USD Multi Purpose Real Estate Project in Sri Lanka.
In this project there are hundreds of Sub-Contractor companies working under the main contractor.
Without Aconext I dont know how we couldve handled all the drawings and Documents.
Its easy to use. Super easy to store and find documents. You can keep track of everything.

Cons

Since its web based. Speed depends in the quality of the internet connection. Takes a bit of time to download larger files

I highly recommend Aconex to any organization and professional.

Pros

Oracle Aconex is a sophisticated Software platform to communicate and store documents securely for any scale of a project. Large number of users can be added and use it at the same time is one of the major advantages. Inbuilt Aconex email function which can also be linked in to outlook is an added advantage. One other thing I like most is that the user can preview and verify a document before downloading it. Documents in Aconex can be exported into an Excel sheet saves the time. Workflow function in Aconex allows to check the hierarchy of reviewing the documents. It also allows the user to sort the documents according to date, organization and etc. Those are some of the appreciative features I experienced in this software.

Cons

Expensive License is the major drawback I see in this software.

One other thing I noticed is, user has to write the name of the document using exact letters as per the documents’ name, otherwise, it shows “no results found”. Like google it doesn’t suggest the words while typing.

Pros

Communication and retention of emails delivered to and from the contractor within the system.

Cons

This software is not intended for an overall program management software and does not have a means of tracking action items, financial, change management. etc. The biggest hurdle to overcome is that this is not a folder based structure.

Ease of tracking documents in workflow and ease of transmitting documents to and from outside contractors.

Pros

I like the ability to configure the metadata. I also like the search and retrieve tools. Having the workflow/review document feature built in is also a time saver.

Cons

The review documents tool set needs to include a tool to export comments and save as a file. Currently, this procedure must be done outside of Aconex. Also, the workflow process should allow the administrator to add additional people to the workflow after it starts. This should not be a separate workflow within an active workflow that is tied to an active workflow participant (although when a user needs that feature it is useful but not typical).
The software also needs a better approach to storing the native file and corresponding pdf file together. Using history is not an effective method (and confusing to typical users) and giving either the native file or pdf file the same document number with a suffix (or some other means of numbering) can also be confusing. Both files should have the exact same document number.

Pros

I greatly appreciate Aconex's flexibility to adapt to policies and procedures you may already have. It does not force you into one way of doing things but at the same time doesn't require significant up-front configuration to get started.

I also like that Aconex is always improving and adding significant and useful new features often.

Cons

The only real con I have is one that can be managed but would be nice to have tighter controls on. Aconex does not offer the ability to restrict the permisison to change the document status (approved, approved as noted, rejected, dfrat, etc.) when superceding with a new version. By default it uses the previous version status for the new version status and if you forget to select a new status you could end up with the draft of the next revision of the document showing as approved in the document register. If you use workflows to approve your documents you can always go back and verify if a document was actually approved by the proper people but to do that requires a few extra mouse clicks.
